Re: Beware the budget rifle that can smoke you on the range
lol.. gotta add this story, last summer my 12 year old son bought his first deer rifle , he saved his money, and had enough to buy a rem 710 chambered for 270 win , we sighted it in and i was pretty impressed with the accuracy. one sunday afternoon a bunch of us were shooting here at our home range. Everybody except Aaron (my son) had nice upper priced rifles. One of the guy's is kind of a know it all, and was making alot of negative remarks about Aaron's rifle.. " I wouldn't own a rifle like that" ect.. ect.. everyone took there turn at the bench, we had two targets set up, and soon there were plenty of bullet holes in and slightly above the bull. Aaron shot last. We had put tape over the previous holes. Aarons rifle was sighted dead on at 100yds, because where we were hunting, that was as far as he would be shooting. After his first shot, the know it all looked through the spotting scope and exclaimed in a huff.." Ya didn't even hit the target bud!!" Aaron didn't say nothing and settled in for his second shot, after which mister know it all again exclaimed... " where in the..... are you aiming ya still didn't hit the target !!!" He again started commenting on Aarons "junk rifle" and informed me that i need to have him practice more!!! at the crack of Aarons third shot the cardboard target fell down , and Aaron turned to mister know it all with a smile and said, " I was aiming for the nail holding the target" closer inspection showed the head of the nail gone and two little holes touching the side !!! I was impressed with....1. that rifles accuracy...2. my sons shooting... and.. 3. the way he conducted himself despite all the negative remarks.. they sure grow up fast.
